This beautifully refurbished cottage, dating back to the 1800’s, was once the accommodation for the head teacher at the village school and built at the bequest of the influential Palmer family. The church opposite is a Grade II listed, striking, Gothic style, largely Victorian church and has been on the site since Saxon times. The current tower at first floor level contains a Norman arch from an earlier church. A plaque in the church lists rectors from the year 1200 and the side chapel and much of the loose furniture is by the ’Mouse Man’ - be sure to stop by and have a look during your stay. The cottage retains some of the original features and is perfect for families or groups of outdoor enthusiasts.

Situated in the village of Easington, it is ideally located for lovers of the great outdoors. Along with the Cleveland Way you are situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park with its abundance of trails and walks right into the heart of some of the most beautiful countryside in the country. The North Yorkshire Heritage Coast with its scores of beaches, bays and coves such as the historical Staithes, made famous by its links to the great explorer Captain James Cook are also close by. The gothic fishing town of Whitby is just a short drive or bus journey away with its historical Dracula linked abbey which is always busy with many events and festivals including the Goth Weekender and the Whitby Regatta, just two of the main attractions of the year. Its reputation for great restaurants and bars is complemented by 3 miles of golden beach, boat trips and the start of a journey into ’Heartbeat’ country on board a steam train. There is an abundance of fabulous countryside to visit as well as attractions such as Flamingo Land and Beamish Museum, and just an hour away is the medieval walled city of York with its cobbled streets, many cafés and bars, as well as the National Railway Museum and Jorvik Viking Centre. Beach 3 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
